Living For We
In 2020, cityLAB of Pittsburgh released a study that ranked Cleveland dead last in terms of livability for Black women. On Living For We, we talk to Cleveland's Black women about their experiences at work, at school, in the doctor's office, and in community with each other in an attempt to answer the question... is Cleveland really as bad as they say it is for Black women?
New episodes every other week
Cleveland is allegedly a healthcare mecca. There should be an abundance of quality care right here in town, but why can't Black women seem to find it? Dr. Carla Harwell of University Hospitals and Dr. Linda Bradley of the Cleveland Clinic, two Black woman doctors, join us to unpack that very question.
